Pine Mountain Trail Hike

Jay Thomas and John Thomas on the Pine Mountain Trail in October 2009. Click here to view the gallery.

John and I hiked 1,300 feet up to the trail via Mullins Road near Cliftwood, VA. Trail ended 17.5 miles later in Elkhorn City where we met up with dad, Luke, and Toby. Highlights were Birch Knob observation tower, horseback riders sharing their blackberry moonshine, multiple vistas of KY and VA, camping near Natural Bridge, Skegg Overlook, bobcat sighting, etc…etc. Strenuous hiking but very worth it. Good training for SW Texas in January.
